No there shouldn't.  That would mean that he was demanding that the ISP
authenicate to him.  He should be *receiving* 'auth pap' from the ISP.
However, it appears that pppd is not starting at the ISP.

The standard Debian /etc/ppp/options includes 'auth' (but not
'require-pap').  Fortunately, pppconfig overrides it by putting 'noauth'
in the provider file.
